      Re: Do I have to subscribe to the movies?

      Anytime+ is available to any Sky TV subscriber, provided that they have a compatible Sky+ HD STB and Sky LLU Broadband package (Home Lite or Unlimited).

      If you wish to see any of the Movies on Anytime+, you will need to subscribe to both the premium Movie packs though.

      As for the WiFi dongle, there is an offer of at the moment. It is an on-line offer for a free WiFi dongle for the Sky STB. You will need to sign up to the Movie packs to get it. If this is what you want, then no harm.

      Personally I prefer a wired connection though. Sky's dongle is based on WiFi g, which isn't too hot on streaming video content.

      Alternatively there are other WiFi media bridges out there. Most take power from a USB source. The USB ports on the Sky STB are currently disabled, so you will need to get a suitable adaptor as well.

      Another solution is a pair of HomePlugs. These offer the same connection rates as a wired solution.
